Tallinn International Horse Show 2018
True emotions – these are the words that can be used to recap the 16th Tallinn International Horse Show that took place from October 5 to October 7 in the familiar Saku Suurhall.
This time we only managed to come very close to the most important victories but we still rejoiced over the dressage World Cup qualifier of Dina Ellermann and Landy’s Akvarel and the show jumping World Cup qualifier of Hanno Ellermann and Freedom. Dina and Akva set a new personal record and Hanno was sincerely surprised at the great achievement of his young horse.
The organizers of the Horse Show, in turn, were suprised at the attendance and the popularity of the event. Almost incredibly, the Saturday’s tickets reserved for advance sale were sold out a week before the event started. Seeing that the Horse Show is eagerly awaited and important for so many people of Estonia and neighbouring countries also motivates us in organizing the 17th Tallinn International Horse Show.
We’ll meet again in 2019, October 4 to October 6!

15th Tallinn International Horse Show
October 6 to October 2017 was the historical weekend of the jubilee Tallinn International Horse Show.
The jubilee event brought about several innovations, the most important and the most extensive for the organizers being the change in the ticket system. For the first time the visitors had the option to purchase tickets for specific numbered seats. In addition, Saturday was divided into two parts. Now we can say that the audience quickly approved the innovation and everything went without major incidents.
This year a new web page was also created and turned out to be highly popular, especially among smart phone users.
The competition itself delighted us with excitement and good results of our athletes. Once again, dressage was on the program and long-awaited World Cup qualifier victory came to Estonia. Dina Ellermann and Landy’s Akvarel have been Estonia’s number 1 rider/horse combination for a long time and finally this important victory came, too. The World Cup qualifier in show jumping on Sunday, sponsored by Alexela, was also gripping for the audience. Although Urmas Raag and Ibelle van de Grote Haart were deprived of the victory by such a narrow margin, the class still ended on a positive note. Michal Kazmierczak on Stakorado took the World Cup Qualifier victory to Poland.
All together, 633 starts were made in these three days, 253 horses and 170 riders from 11 countries competed in various classes. Around 12 000 spectators visited Saku Suurhall and all this came into being thanks to 40 supporters and cooperation partners.
